  • "There was a mix-up with the cleaner because we arrived on an unusual day, but I contacted the owner, and she made it right within hours."

    The cleaner was also very apologetic and even brought us shortbread as a thank you for our understanding. As I told the owner, we should always expect mistakes could happen, but it is the way in which they are managed after discovered that matters most. Both the owner and the cleaner were incredible!

  • "Only real issue is that the beds are really uncomfortable."

    We pride ourselves on having bought expensive, good quality mattresses for the beds in the Kate Kennedy Apartment. We went to a great deal of trouble choosing ones that were more or less average in terms of firm or soft. But we can only supply one mattress per bed. With up to 50 bookings per year, I can't promise each and every guest that these will feel just like sleeping at home. Property Owner

    It was very warm and cosy (we were there in a very cold December). The kitchen was very well equipped with everything one could possibly need. The location was handy for the town and all amenities. Overall, an excellent stay.

  • "My friends and I had a lovely holiday in St."

    Andrews. As we are all fairly elderly ladies and don,t drive it was very handy for bus stop so we were able to have a couple of tours. In the evening we were quite happy to stay home and watch the world go by from the sitting room.

  • "An excellent location near enough to walk to the main tourist sites, although also on a bus route to the centre."

    The bedrooms are at the back of the property so traffic noise from the main road is not a problem. The car park had a numbered bay for each flat which means that parking isn't a problem. Good kitchen facilities, although the dining table would be a squeeze for 4 people. The accommodation details are out of date, for example there are no bunk beds (thankfully). The TV is too small which meant we had to move the chairs nearer to the set to enjoy a film in the evenings. The owner lives abroad which means communications are not quick and the emergency local contact phone number did not work.

    The property was clean and comfortable with a lovely homely atmosphere. The location was fabulous, just a hop and a skip from town and a good choice of nearby supermarkets. We would confidently recommend this property and happily visit again ourselves.

The property

A delightful ground floor apartment, near the centre of the historic coastal town of St Andrews.

Ideal for a couple, a family or even a small group of friends, this property is equally well-situated for a holiday spent relaxing beside the sea, or practising your swing at the world-famous St Andrews Links.

Although this lovely property is all on the ground floor, there are steps to your private parking space to the rear of the property and up to the front door.

Inside you will find two bright and cheery bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with a set of bunks, so there’s plenty of room for everyone.

The comfortable sitting room is the perfect place for relaxing with a good book and the well-equipped kitchen with breakfast area is the ideal spot to sit an enjoy a morning cup of coffee whilst planning the day’s adventures.

Just a short stroll brings you to the centre of St Andrews, famed for its ancient university, stunning beaches and, of course, as the home of golf.

St Andrews Links is the largest public golf complex in Europe and teeing off here immerses you in 600 years of sporting history.

After you’ve played a round or two, sample a whisky or some freshly-caught seafood in one of the many bars and restaurants on offer, before strolling back to your apartment close by.

For those looking to explore the rest of the beautiful county of Fife, you’ll be rewarded by traditional fishing villages dotted along the coast, not to mention historical sites such as the splendid Falkland Palace & Gardens.

At any time of year, this excellent apartment is perfect for a truly memorable break away.

About the location


Dundee 13 miles; Perth 35 miles; Edinburgh 50 miles.

St Andrews is Scotland's oldest university town and is situated in the north-east corner of the Kingdom of Fife. In this region, the landscape varies from the gentle hills in the rural hinterland to the windswept cliffs, rocky bays and sandy beaches where scenes from the film 'Chariots of Fire' were famously shot. The town is easily explored on foot, as the main streets form the hub of the town and offer an interesting mix of 13th century through to modern-day buildings, found alongside a variety of shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. The association of St Andrews with golf dates to the 15th century, with the famous 'Old Course' being constructed in the 16th century, whilst today, St Andrews is the frequent venue of championship events and boasts an additional five alternative public courses in the area as well as the excellent Golf Museum. To the south of St Andrews is the East Neuk, a region of quaint fishing villages, while Fife, Dundee, Perth and Edinburgh can all be easily reached.
